Antonio Brown has been acting reckless ever since the last game of the season and the Pittsburgh Steelers decided they were going to have the last laugh. Kevin Colbert shipped Brown to the Buffalo Bills and that’s probably the last place the future Hall of Famer expected to wind up. For a guy who is from the Miami area Buffalo is the complete opposite of Brown’s hometown. We’re still not sure what the Steelers got in return for their former receiver but it was probably a decent haul. For the Bills this is about as good as it gets because they get to pair Brown with their promising young quarterback Josh Allen. It’s been a while since Buffalo had a receiver who was this talented. Andre Reed is the franchise’s leader with 13,095 receiving yards.
Antonio Brown currently has 11,207 receiving yards over the course of his nine NFL seasons and he could end up finishing his career in Western New York. There’s been some people speculating that Brown might actually retire before even suiting up for the Bills. Remember he said that he doesn’t need football anymore and if that’s the case the 30 year old receiver might end up hanging his cleats up. Hopefully that doesn’t happen because it would be exciting to see LeSean McCoy, Allenm and Brown put together a high flying offense for a team that has traditionally struggled. If A.B embraces this situation it may be the turning of the tide for Buffalo. With a strong free agency and draft this franchise could significantly improve. So far it’s been a good start to the 2019 season and we can expect some fireworks when the games are actually played. Who knows if things go well maybe Brown will actually enjoy his time with his new team? Especially if they can put together some wins and get back to the playoffs.
